The processed meat market will envisage a moderate 2.2% volume y-o-y growth in 2018 over 2017, opines a recent market study published by Fact.MR. The study finds that steadily growing meat industry and increasing growth of the food processing industry is majorly contributing to the growth of the processed food market.

However, demand is likely to witness moderate growth, as growing vegan trend and growing colorectal cancer concerns stall consumption.
